class Car: Vehicle { var numberOfSeats: Int = 4 }

let someCar = Car(withDoors: 4, addWheels: 4)

Here, hope this will help.

11 years old?!! keep it up.

Well in your code challenge you have a class named Car right? Well when you create an object using that class that object becomes an "instance" of the Car class. So, let lamborghini = Car(withDoors: 2, andWheels: 4), the constant lamborghini would be the instance.

Hope that helps with your instance question :)

EDIT: Also, in your code challenge the let someCar = Car(withDoors: 4, andWheels: 4 ) needs to be outside of the Car classes code block. So type it after the last }
